Partnership in keeping with LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions’ philosophy to integrate Visualfiles with the best third-party technologies for customers
LONDON, U.K., 03 October 2018 – LexisNexis® Enterprise Solutions, has added another partner to its network of third-party applications for Lexis® Visualfiles™. Integration with tmconvey, the UK’s leading conveyancing data and search platform from tmgroup, will offer Visualfiles’ customers the choice of using one of the most innovative property search services on the market. Backed by nearly 20 years’ experience in offering solutions to the UK property market, tmconvey has processed over 15 million searches, which is more property searches delivered to conveyancers than any other provider.
“This partnership represents the coming together of two proven, best of breed conveyancing solutions to meet the evolving needs of the market,” Nigel Williams, Product Manager for Visualfiles at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions, said. “Visualfiles is used by organisations across many industry sectors and we enter into partnerships within each sector to facilitate the best technology choices for our customers. Visualfiles is designed as an open solution to offer ultimate flexibility to our customers – both in terms of third-party software that they can integrate Visuafiles with and additional functionality they want to adopt. Our approach delivers extensive customisability for our customers.”
Conveyancing firms interested in integrating Visualfiles with tmconvey have two options. tmconvey can be pre-loaded in the Visualfiles Conveyancing Accelerator providing rapid access to a comprehensive suite of conveyancing workflows – from quotation and instruction through to linked sale and purchase, re-mortgage and transfer of equity. Alternatively, customers can adopt tmconvey as a stand-alone solution that can be plugged into their existing Visualfiles application. Both options allow firms to automate key parts of the search request process and ensure intelligent exchanges of information between Visualfiles and tmconvey.
The time and cost efficiency delivered by automating and streamlining the search request process enables conveyancers to deliver a better service to customers and significantly improves margins in this price sensitive sector.
“Visualfiles and tmconvey are both industry-leading platforms used by conveyancers across the UK, and we have many customers in common” Joe Pepper, Chief Executive Officer at tmgroup commented. “We are therefore delighted to be able to offer this integrated solution, reducing the amount of data entry required, and making time for our customers.”
